Gay Indianapolis Councilman Marrying Partner
Originally printed 10/17/2013 (Issue 2142 - Between The Lines News)
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An openly gay Indianapolis City-County Council member says he'll marry his longtime partner during a ceremony in Washington, D.C., next week.
Councilman Zach Adamson tells The Indianapolis Star http://indy.st/19xEN1w that he and Christian Mosburg will be married in front of a group of friends and family members in the city that has allowed same-sex marriages since 2010.
The 42-year-old Democrat's wedding comes as Indiana legislators are expected to debate during next year's General Assembly session whether to put a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage on the November 2014 ballot.
Adamson says he wants others to see gay marriage as something that doesn't have to be a divisive issue.
Adamson is regarded as Indiana's first openly gay countywide official with his 2011 election to an at-large council seat.
